Help me ask for a raise in my upcoming performance review? In sum, my company’s HQ is in Texas and I feel I’m being paid a Texas wage when I live in Los Angeles (the role is remote). We do have a San Francisco office and I want to ask my boss to match me what staff are making there. As that’s more comparable. Based off of Glassdoor, my salary matches Texas’s exactly and SF has the same role at 10k more. Should I show him the Glassdoor page? Don’t want to come off too strong. Please advise

I would probably avoid showing him Glassdoor since there’s no real way of telling if the salaries reported there are accurate.

To be candid, if I was your boss and you asked for a comp adjustment with this level of justification, it’d be a major red flag. Not because you’re asking for a raise, but because of how you’re thinking through it.

I should also add that their intent was to hire someone specifically in the west coast as they needed more people in PT time zones. The job ad even said so. My email signature says I work in SF office too, I just report internally to the Texas office.

Also I realize SF and LA aren’t equal in cost of living but they are much more comparable than LA to Texas

Not giving me a raise is really making me want to switch jobs. As I’m searching jobs on LinkedIn, In LA there are small nonprofits advertising higher salaries than mine lol because they are local and understand the cost of living.

Thanks, both your posts are very insightful.

Can you transfer which office you're aligned to?

Their intent was to hire someone forever remote AND that they specifically be on the west coast. The job ad even said so. Also my email signature says I work on the SF office. So on paper and to the clients I do work in SF but I report to the Texas office internally.

Hey fellow Disney Lovers,

I generally have a few lessons in which I can use Pixar shorts to teach students how to identify and discuss literary signposts, how to identify and explain the development of theme, character traits, and other narrative elements. What are some of your favorite shorts? I am trying to incorporate activities where my students get to choose their own clips for independent practice with these skills and need a variety to draw from.

I want to talk about how this industry can sometimes feel like it's run by robots.

Take search engine optimization, for example. It's very difficult to find a good SEO person who can actually explain how they work and why they're doing what they do. They seem to be afraid that if they explain things too clearly, they'll lose their edge over the competition!

Hi guys,

Just a quick rant for myself. I have been out to my straight guy friends for so long and we all have very similar interests and in general are very close. I recently started hanging out with a group of gay guys and got interested in dating in general but most of the time, I feel like I don’t fit in and our interests are generally very different. While I find some of the guys I meet attractive, it never “clicks.” I get depressed sometimes and think I’ll just end up alone.
